Jesse’s Excellent Arizonan Adventures!

Episode 186, February 24, 2014
Hosts: Jesse, Paul
Title: Jesse’s Excellent Arizonan Adventures!

After two weeks off, due to Ontario’s statutory holiday Family Day, the York Universe team returns. Jesse was off galavanting around the southwest United States including a trip to Meteor crater and a week at the Kitt Peak National Observatory. The Moon dominated the conversation with Yutu, a car sized object impacting (caught in real time), and of course the Moon and the planets in the night sky for your viewing pleasure. Canadian Men’s and Women’s olympic hockey teams claim gold (again), but the Australians lost in cricket…so Paul didn’t know what to think. Show notes and podcast below. Thanks for listening!

Show Notes: March 26th, 2013 UTC

Hosts: Paul, Jesse, Lianne

A little extra time on the show tonight allowed us to pontificate on the political strife in the United States. The sequestration has caused a massive amount of public funding cuts, including NASA public outreach and education. Of course the Planck Telescope delivers its news that Universe is slightly older than we once thought. Paul, ‘the dean,’ gripes over his failing Aussie cricket team (but mostly off-air). Astronomy Night in Canada starts with York Universe, thanks for listening! See our show notes and podcast below.
